UPDATE: SANTO ARTUSA HAS RECENTLY BEEN CHOSEN AS A SUPERLAWYER AND AS ONE OF THE BEST ATTORNEYS FOR FAMILIES BY NJ FAMILY MAGAZINE
JERSEY CITY LAWYER SANTO ARTUSA’ S ATTORNEY BIO:
My name is Santo Vincenzo Artusa, Jr. I am a lawyer based in Jersey City, New Jersey. I am the owner and founder of the Artusa Law Firm. The goal of my firm is to provide the best legal representation for every case we are hired for in New Jersey. We handle many different aspects of litigation in New Jersey including family law, divorce, annulments, personal injury cases, child custody, child support, restraining order matters, criminal law/criminal defense, estate planning and will creation. I have been selected as a Super Lawyer Rising Star and rated 10 out of 10 by Avvo for providing the best effort I can for each case. I am active in the community formerly coaching youth soccer and serving as a volunteer attorney for the New Jersey State Bar Association Military Personnel and Veterans in New Jersey. I believe the best way to give back to your community is not to write a check but to get your boots on the ground and help.
I was born and raised in North Lawrence, New York, which is in the Five Towns Area of Long Island. My parents immigrated to the United States from Italy in the 1960s. From my parents, I learned to be candid, humble, respectful, self-made and to be extremely hard working.I have always been known for telling it how it is, even if it may not be what you want to hear. I know what it is like to be in family court, I know what it is like to work hard and during difficult times, feel like little progress is being made. I know, you must keep fighting, you must keep trying, you must keep your head up and try to improve and not let current hurdles from deterring your long term plan and goals, whether in a court case or in life. Many of my clients appreciate my candid approach and my ability to understand their specific situations. The best lawyer client relationship is an honest and real one. If my team and I work with you, I promise that:
- I will never rush you to make a decision
- I will never advise you to accept a deal or make a settlement that I would not take
- I will explain the best and worst case scenarios under the law so you can make a clear decision.
- I will give your case the time and attention it deserves
- I will always fight for your best long term interests
I started the Artusa Law Firm, P.C., in 2009, the day I was sworn in as an attorney. Prior to that, I worked on Wall Street where I was an equity trader for several years and after that I was a sales consultant to companies that sought business with the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.
I knew I wanted to be a family law attorney when I had my own family law issues in the Manhattan Family Court and had no idea about the law, the process, how confusing it can be and how stressful it was. For all my clients, I would never advise my client to accept a deal or make an offer I would not make myself, because I have been there.
I have extensive experience in all maters related to family law, divorce, child custody, criminal law, drug cases, personal injury and parenting time cases in New Jersey. I also represent people in criminal law and other litigation cases throughout New Jersey. I only accept cases that I believe I have a very good chance of obtaining a positive outcome for my clients. I have represented people throughout the United States and throughout the world that have family law and divorce cases in New Jersey.

How are you different from other lawyers?
I worked my way from the bottom. From minimum wage in hard labor to $300+ an hour in an office. My parents are immigrants from Italy after World War II ravaged the Italian Economy. I worked every summer of my life since I was 12 for my father, mowing lawns on the South Shore of Long Island and digging ditches, digging out snow who were prominent lawyers, doctors, businessman and so forth. My work ethic is deeply rooted as is my ability to work with people of various backgrounds and attitudes. I can find a middle ground with just about anyone. I know how to win. I have been a part of many different championship teams in soccer, football, hockey and baseball. The times I did lose, it left a clue as to how to win the next time. The law is similar in that way, there is no simple formula that leads to success except persistence.
What advice to you have for people seeking an attorney?
Never, Never hire the lowest cost lawyer/attorney in town. The amount you think you will save may end up costing you so much you would not even believe it. I would also not hire a lawyer in a big firm that may have a billing quota, these attorneys may prolong a case just to have more billable hours instead of trying to resolve the issues fairly. A lawyer needs to be paid for his time and effort, but the interest of the client comes first, not any “quota.”
